Nuremberg as a city is not necessarily known for the best of reasons. Slowly falling apart, there are a number of Nazi buildings that the city would prefer to forget. In addition, there are a number of touristic attractions that draw tourists literally by the million, the biggest being the Christmas Market, Christkindlesmarkt.
